LE BOURGET, France — Boeing says Qatar Airways is buying 14 new 777 passenger and freighter jets worth up to $4.8 billion, as industry professionals gather at the Paris Air Show.
The U.S. plane maker announced Monday that Qatar Airways ordered 10 of the 777-8X jets — a more fuel-efficient model of the 777 — and four 777 freighter jets.
Customers routinely work out discounts off list prices.
Qatar has been a major customer of rivals Boeing and Airbus in recent years.
